We have just finished two pieces cut from the tail of the Bell Huey. One painted as 101st Airbourne and the othe with the Eagle from the Cavalry squadrons. Both have kept the original paint from when the aircraft was in service.

Ju88 Elevator

A junkers Ju 88 Elevator section..

Spent a little time unbending this piece of aircraft. Sold as 110 but we have positively identified as Ju88 elevator section. The lower paint is RLM 65. Upper surface is painted in RLM 70/71. The crisp demarcation between the two greens is very clear. Lost in Russia with evidence of shrapnel and bullets.
